Easy Mexican Chicken Crescent Rolls

New favorite alert! We’ve made these Chicken Enchilada Roll-Ups three times last month! We can’t get enough of them! They are SOOO good! This recipe only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. I used some rotisserie chicken and the roll-ups were ready for the oven by the time it preheated. I love super easy weeknight meals! We served the roll-ups with some black beans and Quick Enchilada Rice. Everything was so delicious! Make this tonight. I promise everyone will love it!

How to Make Crescent Roll Enchiladas

This casserole is super easy to make. Start with separating crescent rolls into triangles. Mix together chopped chicken, cream cheese, taco seasoning, and cheese. Divide the chicken between the crescent roll. Roll up the rolls and plate in a baking dish. Top with enchilada sauce and cheese. Bake until bubbly.

  • I used rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken in this dish.
  • Can use Neufchatel (low-fat) cream cheese.
  • I used cheddar cheese in this casserole. You can use any cheese you prefer.
  • Can substitute green enchilada sauce if you prefer.
  • Can Chicken Enchilada Roll-ups be frozen? Yes. I suggest freezing the casserole after baking.
